Specifying a port when connecting with SSH

Some servers run their SSH server on a different port than 22 for a variety of reasons, including security.

To specify a custom port when connecting, use the -p flag as in the example below:

ssh user@server.com -p 2222

In this example, the client would attempt to connect using port 2222.
